Junior Sabres win to trim deficit - BuffaloNews.com - Saturday, March 16 -
The Buffalo Junior Sabres earned a much-needed playoff win Saturday night, beating North York (Ont.), 5-4, in overtime at the Buffalo State Ice Arena before a crowd of 435. With the win, Buffalo trimmed its deficit in the Ontario Junior Hockey League best-of-seven, second-round playoff series to 2-1. Game Four is Tuesday night at 7:45 pm in North York. Game #5 is Wednesday at 8:40 pm ET at Northtown Center in Amherst.
Alex Dagnal scored the winner off a Tyler Gjurich assist at 6:15 of the extra session. North York forced overtime at 8:41 of the third on Chris Aitcheson’s goal, which came nearly a minute after Gjurich had given the Junior Sabres a 4-3 lead. Gjurich finished with three points, while Max Mikowski had a goal and an assist. Ryan Schmelzer and Pat Egan also scored for Buffalo.
LaxSabre - Congrats on the win last night! I was following along via twitter and every time a new tweet came up - especially during the third period/overtime, I didn't want to really click on it because I was afraid to see bad news. 50-50 shot of me attending Wednesdays Game #5 - I'll have to see if my friend is still able to attend now thats its a later start. If not, I'll follow along on twitter. (Yeah, I'm too cheap to get the video - also I never have any luck when I purchase stuff like that - 75% of the time-video is crap) Well good luck Tuesday! Bring home a win so its 2-2 heading into Game #5 on Wednesday.
Interesting, four local hockey teams all went to overtime yesterday with three of them (Buffalo Junior Sabres, Niagara and Canisius) winning and unfortunately one of them (NHL-Buffalo Sabres) losing. The wins were all playoff ones with Niagara and Canisius ending their series. Those two will now meet in the AHA Semfinals next Friday at the Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, NY. (Go Canisius there!)
